    So what do you guys think? I mean yeah I even made a thread pointing out the dangers of Negative SEO but
    in general Negative SEO is bad for the industry and BHW is a place where we as a community help
    each other attain our goals and not talk about self destruction to our craft and members.

    So my idea is just to ban the topic from discussion hurting its awareness.

    You do understand the name of this place and what it means right? If you want to only associate with people who talk about the positive aspects of IM I would suggest you go create your own forum. You can call it whitehatworld. lol :)

    I like the idea but at the same time it would hurt people trying to find answers on here after being hit with neg seo.

    It does not need to be banned. SEO comes with the good and the bad. The fact people talk about it is good. It gives the chance for people to explain why it is not an acceptable act. The BHW community does an excellent job in deterring people from using such techniques and a ban a blanket ban on the topic will hinder our ability to do that.

    We know that talking to our children about drugs, sex and Justin beiber is a positive, because it allows them to make informed decisions and most of the time an informed person will realise the risks of drugs, wear condoms and makes offensive beiber memes.

    I disagree. I think we should just show them the light. Bring them over to the good side.

    There's good and bad in all of us, you might as well ban everything.
    Your intentions are noble. It's just that we can't learn what we don't discuss.

    Best thing is to blacklist the terms {negative seo|neg seo} just like ******** otherwise it will spread like wildfire just like youtube flagging. Atleast that won't educate the newbies out here to pursue anything like this.

    You can also accomplish something similar by moving the topic to the Junior VIP section.

    I know many businesses that want to push down complaints below the fold.

    Discussing NEG SEO Methods was actually not allowed before when this thing is just beginning to be popular. I believe a Jr. Executive VIP was reprimanded for posting a detailed guide of how to take out a competitor from google doing some negative SEO. Basically when there are threads about this topic, it got deleted as soon the mods are aware of it.

    But this thing has blown out of proportion that you will see a thread about it almost everyday. So I guess the mods has gone tired of deleting and banning those people that talk about it.

    To the big G, any type of SEO is negative SEO, you don't need to open any topic just to discuss it. At anytime they can just say, "now this is spam", and spam it is.

    I hate the Neg SEO threads and would only like to see threads that discuss recovery from NSEO.

    Well you have to face it, negative seo exists out there. I woke up with 100k backlinks in 2 days... all from autoapproved spam blogs (over 1k links in one page), and what I had to do was to sort everything out. Went into disavow tool and managed to "save" something in time. The sad part is that the rankings never came back to what they where... and we couldn't do anything else than that.

    So i'm glad someone decided to say something like this, negative seo is a really successful strategy to dominate your competition. I don't practice or encourage this, but I was "slapped" by one of my competitors and Google didn't do much to help us.
